. they are antiinterventionist, antigoing into these unnecessary wars like iraq and afghanistan and libya. they are all fed up with that. they don't want to fight in ukraine. they don't want to fight in crimea. you saw last summer when obama was going to attack syria, air and missile strikes because of their chemical weapons, the american people rose up as one to stop it cold and they did. the elites john in washington, d.c. of both partys are deeply interventionist, but the american people are antiwar and antiinterventionists, but not isolationists. >> i don't know if you consider obama administration as the elites. he kept us out of wars. i totally agree with that. but after two wars that the american people perceive we lost and an economy that was tanked and pouring money into iraq which is now plunged back into civil war and into afghanistan, which may be better, but it's not a trillion dollars better and these young men and women coming home and no jobs for them, can you blame the american people for saying let's pay attention to home here for a while? >> let mort in. >> i think if you try to take the te

in the management of crises. remember iraq. remember libya. i believe so far we can be quite proud that even though there are differences here and they're both within and between we have managed to keep things together. i believe we would be operating -- offering of victory on a silver platter if he allowed us either within the eu or in the trans-atlantic community to be divided about the response. i mean that only half seriously then do we should say thank you, mr. president, the reminding is that there is a need to have a vibrant and active nato. some people in europe are beginning to think that maybe after afghanistan we don't need this organization that much anymore. thank you, mr. president, for reminding us that it is a good idea for europe to look at how to diversify our energy sources such. thank you, mr. president, for also reminding us that it is totally essential as an objective for the european union to speak with one voice, not only when things are called bud particularly at times of crises. i believe you have given us enough. i was hoping we would not need this. it gave us up pretty g

the health care act. the situation in libya was a tinderbox. those brave people who volunteer to work for our safety and our security understood this. it is not the same thing as i'm not a crook. it is not the same thing as aluminum tubes and mushroom clouds. this is always a risk area when people go into a country to try to make peace or solve problems in a dysfunctional government and people are rebelling. yes, that film did have something do with it and there was coverage of it. it was two weeks in the new york times and the washington post that showed that it was already a very dangerous situation and this horrific, and moronic film that came out that degraded their god and their religion was all it took for them -- from situation to explode. i think it is time for us to move on and stop with the distractions and all of the division because that is what this party always does. they point the finger at the women, fear the enemy. upon the finger at the minority, they're are the enemy. they want to divide us. we have to start thinking for ourselves and realize that if we don't come together

outcomes. >> we had a guest here who complained that when we saw similar images in libya and ukraine, members of the senate took to the floor and demanded action, but when it was south sudan, silence. your reaction. >> well, i can see where that argument comes from. i think a lot of people are very frustrated, policy makers around the globe, as to how to get to these two leaders, the president and former president, and how to change their calculations. i don't think some sort of international intervention is on the table here, but there really is a good deal of attention that's going to this. it's not so much why don't people care, it's how can we change their behavior and so far, we're coming up empty. >> how will john kerry's presence at the peace talks be received given the recent threat of u.s. sanctions? >> i think the symbolism of his direct involvement is going to be a good thing, and i suspect there may be conversations about those sanctions and how they can be most impactful. a lot depends on the region, on neighboring countries. it's good to hear secretary kerry is meeting

in a number of countries, in libya for example. some steps in different ways could be taken with respect to syria. nobody takes into account what happens in libya now. it's what was done and it's finished. what's necessary is to have the firmness and determination to act. why is this determination not there? there are sanctions, but nothing much is happening here. people die, people leave their country, there is no remedy for them. this is a humanitarian drama. chemical weapons, yes, but it is the delay tactics. i'm not fooled by the chemical weapons issue. 2000 people die as a result of a chemical weapons attack? that's considered a crime. on the other hand you have almost 200,000 people who have been killed by conventional weapons and that's totally different. if the result of a crime is death, then it is a crime. i'm not saying i disagree with chemical weapons. of course we need to do something against them, but why don't we act against conventional weapons? barrel bombs, chemical weapons, artillery, they are all used to kill people and they are considered almost nonexistent. where di

at libya where we did intervene through air power alone, changed the government but it is a mess and exporting its problems across the middle east. what we have to understand rather than saying, you know, who is to blame for this is to say, what is the nature of this threat and how do we counter it? >> but what you're saying is that you have to call it what it is, and you can't be reluctant to act. and on this program last week david brooks, columnist for "the new york times," said the following about president obama. he said, let's face it, obama, whether deservedly or not, does have i'll say it crudely, this is him speaking, but a manhood problem in the middle east. is he tough enough to stand up to somebody like assad, somebody like putin? i think a lot of the rap is unfair, but certainly in the middle east there is an assumption that he is not tough. you mentioned syria. the president drew a red line, chemical weapons were used, he did not follow through. you have sectarian violence, you have what could be the verge of a failed state in syria. >> right. but the question is wh
